So, I got this new Maxtor 80gig HD. Now I find out my Award bios on the Tyan S1894 Tigercub 100 does not support >33.x gb drives. I went to Tyan site and got the latest bios and flashed, but it just flashed to the Award v4.51 bios. I believe I could use the cyl limiter jumper, but rather not. I do dual boot Win98se and 2000, so this drive will probably be partitioned to at least 2 drives. Could do 3 if that helps in any way.

Would rather flash bios to something > Award 4.51 and use drive normally if at all possible.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
